Catching up on the blog and uploading all the pending posts. The burst of color makes me smile and this piece is named after me (The Toyo Set), excited much. I partnered with Boya Apparels earlier in the year and I have to say I am still impressed with the brand. View Post
Happy New Month and Happy Independence Day:)
How did you celebrate Nigeria’s Independence Day? I went food tasting with my Client for the wedding event in December. After, I attended a concert with Don Moen and other Nigerian Gospel Artists. For anyone living in Nigeria, we are in a recession and people are discouraged and not hopeful. In addition to that, I have been hearing a lot of people losing family and friends. I was encouraged after the concert that despite the circumstance in life, your focus should be on one person “Jesus”.
How did your week go? Mine was amazing, I met new people and had real deep conversations with them. I was invited to a potluck and I so loved the “real talk” game and felt connected to each person in some way. One of the discussions was about what word would you delete out of the dictionary and I said IMPOSSIBLE. So guys, please share what word would you delete from the dictionary and why?
I believe you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to do. I read a book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell that says “It takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field”. Even Vince Lombardi (just learnt about him) says “We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible”. This just motivated me to continue my passion of fashion blogging and being consistent.
Today is a beautiful day and I am so excited I collaborated with Liz Eleko of Inspire Junkie. I heard great things about Liz and finally met her at a wedding. We got talking, she’s a lifestyle blogger and we decided to collaborate. Liz said “I’m taking you to Azuridge and you will love it” In my head, I was like I’m sure she’s over hyping the place but I was wrong…this place is a hidden Gem.
Azuridge Estate Hotel is a luxury destination with 13 acres of rolling foothills in Priddis, Alberta. It’s about 20 mins away from Calgary (if you live in the SW). Do you know this estate was formerly owned by an individual, Mogen Smed (Inspired is an understatement) and he filed for bankruptcy. The property was then bought by geologists. The name “Azuridge is a fusion of azurite and ridge. Azuridge is a private and exclusive place. If you are looking for a place to de-stress, this should be your perfect peaceful escape.
I decided to rock my ankara set for brunch. I wanted to go for a simple yet classy look. The detachable sleeves just makes you rock the outfit in different ways. I am really proud of myself on my thrift missions lately and scoring a bag for only (wait for it)…5CAD.
